“Are you laughing at me?

Her lie was undermined by her fit of giggles that she tried to hide with a hand covering her mouth.

I handed her the flowers which she gratefully with eyes that twinkled a smile. But she began giggling again.

“Why’re you laughing? What’s so funny?” Her giggles were contagious and I could not pull a straight face, which is probably why she dodged my questions.

I offered my hand to her, then we proceeded to my ride. We were awkwardly bumping into each other and she was still giggling hard. As embarrassed as I felt, I held no grudge against my date. Instead, I relished the moment to commit her giggles to my memory.

Then she muttered something, which caused my free hand to fly to correct my pants zipper.

Alternative ending:

She won’t be laughing anymore when I’m asking for my ransom.

I preferred the cheerful ending. Which would you choose?

PS: Yellow Orchids tell the recipient you’re head over heels for them. I initially wanted to title this post: Orchids Aren’t Actually Romantic. Luckily I googled before I did.
